Partners for good
Serving our local communities by putting our expertise to work
May 6, 2015
Nonprofits are vital to the health of our communities, whether they provide a safe space for kids after school or social services for the poor and elderly.
These organizations aren’t immune to many of the challenges that businesses face; yet, unlike many for-profit organizations, they often lack access to professional services expertise. We have a unique opportunity to fill that gap; leveraging the expertise of our consultants to help nonprofits be more effective and efficient.
Our pro bono services allow us to do what we do best—solving business and technology challenges—and use those skills to help nonprofits be more successful at what they do best—providing quality programs and services. The Philanthropy Fellow program pairs a Slalom consultant with a nonprofit for a three-month, full time, pro bono engagement. We’re proud to partner with local organizations that allow us to give back in truly meaningful ways, such as building a new website to help the Boys and Girls Club of King County fulfil its mission or helping Larkin Street Youth Services rally its staff behind a common goal.
"The business results were awesome, but the change to the way we think about how we serve clients and run our business was transformational.”

Expertise in action
Our nonprofit partners are curing childhood cancers, tackling youth homelessness, piloting STEM programming, and breaking the cycle of poverty—to name a few. It’s important, complex work, and supporting it effectively requires taking the time to learn the ins and outs of the organization, its cause, and its operating model.
One of the ways that we help is through our Philanthropy Fellow program, which pairs a seasoned consultant with a nonprofit for a three-month pro-bono engagement. It allows our consultants to use their skills and knowledge for good, and it gives our nonprofit partners the expertise required to solve their biggest operational challenges.
